Stevia Rebaudiana is a small tender perennial native to Central America. It has elongated green leaves with a serrated edge, its flowers are small and white. Up until now, Stevia is considered one of the best existing medicinal plants. From the leaves of this plant, which are calorie-free but 30 times sweeter than sugar, you can obtain a very sweet concentrated juice. From this juice, you can extract a very sweet white powder (300 times sweeter than sugar). Both juice and minced leaves have a sweet taste with an aromatic aftertaste that remember licorice and anise flavour. Nowadays, Stevia is cultivated in more than 16 countries in 3 continents (Africa, South America and South-East Asia).

Today, using the word "Stevia", we refer to both the plant and its componets, even though just some of them have sweetening properties. Steviol glycosides are the real sweetening components that are extracted by dessication and purification of Stevia leaves. Among these, Rebaudioside-A is the one with the best sensory profile together with an high sweetening power. Therefore, Stevia extracts are 100% natural, calorie free and they have zero on the glycemic index. These are the reasons why Stevia is suitable for diabetics and for the current trend towards healthty and natural food. More over, Stevia extracts represent the best alternative to sugar. Much research has confirmed the total harmlessness of Stevia towards human health. According to FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and FAO/WHO is suitable for all the family members.
